Very disappointing end to the Test match! I understand that Sri Lanka won the series but this is crazy stuff, they could have won it 2-0. I would have been happy even if Pakistan had lost the match but for Mahela to just agree to a draw while Sanga was still batting is really disappointing for any cricket lover. This is probably one of the reasons of the decline of Test cricket, you wait for a result for five days and then it's a draw where all the effort that both sides put into it are gone to waste.
